91-year-old accomplishes longtime skydiving dream
ALEXANDRIA, Minn. - Carol Denke of Alexandria has dreamed of skydiving for more than 60 years.
Finally, at age 91, she can cross it off her to-do list.
The mother of three, grandmother of 10 and great-grandmother of 16 accomplished her goal on Sept. 14, just 11 days before her 91st birthday.
Denke said it was listening to her husband talk about his parachuting experience that started her dreaming about it.
